2022 marks the tenth anniversary of the Maryland Biodiversity Project! We plan on celebrating the entire year with many events, including exciting field trips.

For our second field trip of 2022, Jim Brighton will lead a trip to the Susquehanna River to experience the blooming wildflowers on Saturday, April 16. At 9am we will meet at the Rock Run Parking area in Susquehanna SP. We will spend the day exploring the biodiversity of Susquehanna SP and the Funks Pond area, giving special emphasis to spring ephemerals. We will also be on the lookout for the super weird trilliums that grow along the Susquehanna that may possibly be a new species (or just a hybrid swarm).

Once the trip is full we will make an announcement on the MBP socials. Because we are very serious about the safety of our trip participants and trip leaders, this field trip is restricted to only those who are fully vaccinated

***If you can’t make this trip, John Hall will be leading a similar trip in Washington County near Antietam the same day. Sign-up for John’s trip will be posted soon.***
